The integrated dual degree honors programs have been developed for exceptional students who are capable of accelerating their educational experience in a program combining the curriculum of the undergraduate Counseling major and a graduate program in Counseling Psychology or Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
(Both degrees awarded at the completion of the joint program.)
Students may combine the undergraduate Human Services or Counseling program with graduate specializations. Graduates of the dual degree program in Counseling Psychology will be eligible for professional licensure in Massachusetts and most states at the completion of the program at Lesley. The programs are designed for students who demonstrate a high level of maturity and academic potential. The integrated programs demand that students be able to achieve the academic rigor of graduate education by the time they reach their junior year of traditional undergraduate study. Students in the accelerated program must be able to achieve a level of introspection and cultural awareness necessary to engage in clinical work at a relatively young chronological age.
Students will be eligible for admission at two admissions review periods:
Students who wish to enter this program follow the first-year requirements for the Counseling major. Once accepted into the program, a student will work closely with the Dual Degree Advisor to choose an appropriate course sequence.
